I have tried to make fudge so many times... and nearly every time this has happened. I've heard a lot about making sure that crystals don't form...

Here's a pretty informative website about this:

Rhapsody, I think you mean condensed milk, not evaporated milk, and that wouldn't be a traditional fudge recipe but an "easy" one. Traditional fudge is made with sugar. The sugar gives a certain textural quality. Report It

  • oh, fudge! try adding more milk and butter

    play tf2!!!!!

    just start over

    TRIPLE CHOCOLATE FUDGE

    1/2 cup butter
    4 1/2 cups sugar
    1 can (1 1/2 cups) evaporated milk
    4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
    2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
    1 12 oz bar sweet baking chocolate, chopped
    2 1 oz squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon butter rum schnapps or amaretto
    1 cup pecans, walnuts or macadamia nuts, chopped

    Line a brownie-sized baking pan with wax paper or foil, covering sides of pan. Spray with non-stick spray or grease foil with butter.

    Combine butter, sugar, and evaporated milk (do not use sweetened condensed milk) in a saucepan stirring over medium heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.

    While constantly stirring, turn to high heat and allow to reach a rolling boil. Once mixture is boiling, stop stirring and allow to boil for an additional 5 minutes, then remove pan from heat.

    Stir in marshmallows; when melted, add chocolate and continue to stir until all is melted and well combined. Stir in flavorings (vanilla and butter rum or amaretto), then add chopped nuts.

    Immediately spread mixture in the lined baking pan. Sprinkle with demerarra or colored sugar (optional).

    Allow to cool at least one hour before cutting into squares for serving.


    There isn't anything you can do to salvage the fudge now. Unfortunately, you have to start over. Next time heavily butter the sides of the pan, that way raw sugar won't fall into the bubbling fudge when you're cooking it. Be very careful not to knock any sugar that may stick to the side of the pan into the fudge while it's cooking. Cooking it slowly makes it easier to deal with.

    Good luck.
